October 29th – 11:00 – 13:00

Imagination in Husserl

A good grasp of the role of the imagination in Husserlian phenomenology is very important for systematic reasons. For example, it is important for a proper understanding of the difference between Kantian and Husserlian approaches to understand how Kant’s notion of the transcendental synthesis of the imagination is taken up and redirected by Husserl. Another systematic role that the imagination plays is regarding the practice of phenomenology, in particular the eidetic method. We will discuss both systematic issues and attempt to assess their philosophical benefits and limitations.

Eidetics in Husserl

The eidetic method is one of the most important, distinct, and controversial elements of phenomenology. In this seminar we will be reviewing some aspects of the eidetic method that are often under-emphasized, such as: the relation of its passive and active moments; the relation between its contingent and necessary moments; its limitations; and the precise role of the imagination.

Transcendental Idealism in Husserl

Husserl’s idealisms are all controversial – in part because idealism in general has had a bad reputation. By looking at both Husserl’s ‘idealism of ideas’ and Husserl’s ‘transcendental idealism’ we are going to discuss their relation and the implications of that relation for the idealism-realism debate.


October 30th – 14:00 – 16:00

Husserl as a Thinker of Complexity

In this seminar, I introduce a particular way of understanding the whole of Husserl’s work in terms of a (non-Husserlian) distinction between simple (or linear) analysis and complex analysis. In particular, I would like to discuss some basic Husserlian notions, such as the notion of ‘founding’ (Fundierung), as well as some passages from the C-Manuscripts to discuss the potential helpfulness of understanding Husserl’s work as a complex analysis.
